Hi I'm Isaac

I write short stories and computer programs. I'm married to a beautiful woman. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a minimalist. I believe that websites should be small, clean and color-coordinated; kitchens should be shiny and organized; and lives should be lived freshly and passionately. I make goals and I often reach them. I can take a situation and improve it. I am the latest version of myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in God. It's one of the simple things I do that brings me joy. Mormonism keeps me uncluttered, positive, and social. Here's how I imagine heaven: white. White and solid, flowing, easy on the eyes. Full of smiling people dressed in white. They work, they talk, and they dance. Everybody has a family. And sometimes, when it's very warm, there's a rainstorm.

How I live my faith

The gospel I follow is simple, well-organized, sensible and beautiful. I set aside a few minutes each day to be with my heavenly father by reading the scriptures, praying, and serving others. I work hard and I smile. It's awfully hard to complain through a smile.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon means giving up alcohol, tobacco, drugs, premarital sex, swear words, revenge and the love of money. Most people think it sounds boring. Allow me to rephrase: Being a Mormon means giving up sadness. It means giving up regret and anger. It means giving up the pain of past experiences, trusting completely in the only Being who will never fail you, and learning to be completely at peace with the life that He has given you. Sometimes I sit down across from somebody who thinks that a Japanese car with a modded V8 engine and smart valve technology, or a job that pays 40 dollars an hour with medical benefits, is going to make them happy. Being a Mormon is being able to look that person straight in the eye and tell them that it's not true. The only thing that can truly make anyone happy is living a life of love, service and obedience to God's commandments. I do these things and I am happy. That's what being a Mormon is like.
